In December 2011, the AquaFish CRSP completed a three-year project that successfully trained Malian stakeholders in improved production technologies and management practices for aquaculture and freshwater fisheries. CRSP researchers from Kenya, China and Thailand worked closely with Malian farmers to address some of the country’s key development needs. The success of this project illustrates how successful South-South collaboration can be in building capacity in developing countries. By the end of the project in 2010, Malian stakeholders had taken significant steps towards building a framework for self-sufficiency in aquaculture production and sustainable fisheries management.
